who caved in and got one already? How are you using it with live? How is the drum machine synthesis emulation like?

I have had the spark for over a week now and have used it as a stand alone drum machine, midi controller and virtual instrument. It has a nice feel and great classic analog sound to it and very easy to design your own sounds. The drag and drop feature makes it a breeze to add your own samples and add to the spark library. The hardware itself is heavy duty with plenty of knobs for controlling midi instruments and dj software.

What you need is chloroform, a screwdriver, and a new social security number.

teacee:
how would you rate its sound quality compared to high quality analog samples (like Goldbaby's) and what can be achieved with a good 'analog' synth (like Synth squad)?

hey guyz, my name is Nico, nice to meet u.
How i can connect the Spark on my Ableton Live? I need to record the separate midi tracks...But when i make a pattern and then i use in the midi track, the pattern have all channels (kick,clap,snare) in one! i think we have a way for record the drum in different midi channels!
How i can do that? :|
